Aston Villa fans laud Chukwuemeka for FA Youth Cup performance vs. Liverpool
Aston Villa supporters have been full of praise for 17-year-old midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka following his performance in the FA Youth Cup.
The England youth international was again on top form for the Villains as they steamrolled past Liverpool to claim a 2-1 win at Villa Park. Chukwuemeka also featured for the first-team on Sunday.
Chukwuemeka is widely regarded as one of the top youth talents coming through at Villa Park. The Austrian-born midfielder has already featured twice in the Premier League for Dean Smith’s side. The 17-year-old is also being monitored by the likes of Manchester City and Manchester United as reported by the Athletic.
The teenager is much-hyped amongst Villa fans, and last night, Chukwuemeka again stole the show for the home side as Villa claimed their fourth FA Youth Cup triumph.
Chukwuemeka is set for a first-team role next season, and supporters on social media were amazed with what they were seeing from the midfielder, who was influential in Villa’s fin over Liverpool.
Here’s what some Villa fans had to say about Chukwuemeka on Twitter…

Chukwuemeka has compared himself to Pogba and I tend to agree. The way he glides around the pitch and keeps the ball so close to him is Pogba-esque #avfc— 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗔𝗩𝗙𝗖 𝗙𝗮𝗶𝘁𝗵𝗳𝘂𝗹 🦁 (@AVFCFaithful_) May 24, 2021
Too good for this level— LeoUTV (@LeoAVFC82) May 24, 2021
Reminds me of Zaha in his dribbling style and movement.— RJC (@ClaridgeRichard) May 24, 2021
As well as City and United, AS Monaco are said to be interested in Chukwuemeka.
